This event has been moved due to coronavirus restrictions from the early May bank holiday to the new date of 11th - 14th June 2021. Bookings have automatically been rolled over to the new date. Full refunds are available for those unable to make the new date, provided your place is cancelled on or before 18th April 2021. 

This event going ahead on these dates remains dependent upon Welsh restrictions being sufficiently eased by then to allow it to proceed. 

 

Join one of OutdoorLads' most popular events  - camping in the walled gardens of a stately home, beside the meandering River Usk set at the foot of the Brecon Beacons. We'll be holding a second event at Penpont in 2021 as well: this will go live in Spring 2021. 

Many of you will know and love Penpont but for those who don't it truly is a magical place.

We will be running mountain walking, canoeing, mountain biking, and climbing days on this event as well as some beautiful day walks

If you're feeling adventurous, you will have the opportunity to explore the Brecon Beacons with some of the finest views that South Wales has to offer. If you'd like a more sedate weekend, we have plenty of less strenuous activities planned and we'll be within easy travelling distance of the towns of Brecon and Abergavenny. Altertnatively you can spend the weekend relaxing within the Penpont Estate: exploring the remarkable buildings, gardens, the woodland art, hedge maze, tennis courts, croquet lawns, dower house and the 2000 acre estate that surrounds you!

After dusk we will gather together around a campfire, relax and be merry.

Campervans: Small campervans are welcome at the site, but limited to two in number and so subject to availability. They must be pre-booked with the OutdoorLads office on support@outdoorlads.com and there will be an additional charge. Unfortunately this site does not accept motorhomes or caravans. 

Dogs: Penpont also welcomes well behaved quiet dogs, but they must be kept under control and with you during your stay on site. There is an additional charge of £6 per dog for the weekend, to be paid in cash on arrival.
